Nov. Stamp a Stack #2

I can't seem to stop using Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green! Love it! This is a CASE of a Stamp Class card by Erin Gonzales. (Scroll down to her stamp class and see the card on the lower left in the photo.) I used Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Pool Party card stocks. The bottom edge of the mat is punched with the Pinked Hearts Border Punch. I used the Chevron embossing folder to go with that punched border. Other punches used were: Postage Stamp, Merry Minis Punch Pack and 1" Square Punch. The ribbon is Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon. Two down and three cards to go for my Stamp-a-Stack next week. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Nov. Stamp a Stack #1

I'm finally going to do some card making with my friends. My cast comes off on the 27th; then, PT, but we will do a Stamp a Stack on the 30th. Anyway, we will make two each of five designs. This is the first one, and it's a CASE of this card by Cristena Bagne. I changed the base card color and the ribbon. The card stocks I used are Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Whisper White. The ribbon is Whisper White Satin. The stamp set is Scentsational Season with the Holiday Framelets to cut the Gingerbread Man. Thanks for stopping by.

Snow Much Fun (TSC1116)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for this week was presented by Sillyfilly. Sylvia asked us to make a Christmas card with a snowman or or a scene and use some kind of embossing somewhere on the card. I used a Stampin' Up! embossing folder for the snowflakes. The card stock is Whisper White and Raspberry Ripple. The ink is mainly Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green. The snowman is the short guy from "Snow Much Fun". I actually cut him out and popped him up! Everything used to make this card is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Here I am!

It's been over a month now since I've posted. My foster child left on October 12, and I had surgery on my hand on October 15. I've been a little down in the dumps. Everything is so hard to do with just one good hand!
The photo above shows how it looked for the first week or so after surgery.
The next photo shows how it looks now. I got the bandages and splint off and the stitches taken out two weeks after surgery. I have about a week and a half before the cast comes off and I go to physical therapy. The pink is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, especially since my oldest daughter is fighting that battle now. That's a whole other story. Anyway, today I finally made a card. It will be in my next post. Thanks to everyone for their patience!!!
